Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine uses naturally occurring biological substances to repair and replace damaged tissues in your body. The medical providers at Corner Canyon Pain and Medicine use science-backed regenerative medicine techniques, including:

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

PRP is blood from your body that gets processed to increase the concentration of platelets. You may be familiar with platelets due to their role in forming blood clots. Platelets also contain hundreds of growth factors that are an important part of your body’s natural healing process.

Mesenchymal stem cells

Stem cells are the only cells in your body that can develop into many types of cells. For example, one stem cell can become a bone, cartilage, or muscle cell. Injecting mesenchymal stem cells into an area of injury or disease promotes cellular regeneration and tissue repair.

What does regenerative medicine treat?

The team at Corner Canyon Pain and Medicine uses regenerative medicine to help men and women reduce the need for pain medications and surgical procedures. You may be a candidate for regenerative medicine if you have one of the following conditions:

  • Knee pain, including patellar tendinitis or jumper’s knee
  • Osteoarthritis of the knee
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Sports injuries, such as a hamstring strain
  • Low back pain

Regenerative medicine can also help you heal faster after a surgical procedure, such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction in the knee or rotator cuff repair in the shoulder.

What should I expect from a regenerative medicine treatment?

First, your medical provider at Corner Canyon Pain and Medicine performs a physical exam and reviews your medical history to make sure regenerative medicine is right for you. Then, they recommend the best course of treatment for your particular condition. This may include injections of mesenchymal stem cells, PRP, or both. 

A PRP injection begins with a blood draw from your arm. Then, your provider at Corner Canyon Pain and Medicine processes the blood to isolate the PRP, which they inject into the treatment area. 

The team at Corner Canyon Pain and Medicine uses mesenchymal stem cells that come from an FDA-registered lab at Predictive Biotech to ensure the highest quality product.
